Before giving up on cruising, may I suggest that you possibly consider a different cruise line.‚ Not all cruise are party cruises.‚ The shorter the cruise 4-5 day ones often are.‚ Try a 10-day cruise on Celebrity, Princess, HAL, RCCL or NCL.‚ I think that you will be more satisfied.‚

I agree. Try it again before you give up.

We've been on 2 of Carnival's 4 day cruises and we loved them. We don't drink and didn't notice and any drunks on those cruises. There are notices that the comedy shows become adult and R rated, so that people are not offended by the language when they attend the late shows. The music can be loud for some people but others enjoy it. We make sure our room is not anywhere close to the lounges or other potentially noisy areas.

Sorry you didn't enjoy everything, but if there were some things you enjoyed,mperhaps try another after doing a little more pre cruise research, and come back here with all of your questions.

It looks like you enjoyed several high spots, and the low spots can be overcome.

As mentioned above, looking at a deck plan when booking can help alleviate most noise problems (try to make sure you have cabins (or other relatively quiet areas) above, below and nest to you. Avoid the area around unlabeled "white" areas, as those are usually accessed by crew or contain machinery.

As far as entertainment and other passengers, you may enjoy a Celebrity or Princess cruise a bit more -- the entertainment is usually a bit more sedate, and the clientele are not quite as rowdy.

Yelp. Some say that you either love cruising or you dont.

One lump or two?
